tonightbut all the scientific action is really happening *underground. geologists realized the damage from that napa quake in 2014.was much worse than their models would have predicted. so now they're figuring out how bad things might getthe *next time an earthquake hits. in the dry grass behind napa's westwood hills park, scientists from the u-s-g-s unloaded this machine to bore into the earth. meanwhile, our quadcopter four pilot, mark, unloaded his drone. this is just one site in a project that spans about 120 square miles across the napa valley. "we are not trying to predict when earthquakes will occur; we're trying to understand what the effects are likely to be, and how we can minimize those effects." but before the complicated physics and computer science come into play, there's the grunt work.
"you get bounced around pretty good." this crew has to drill 42 holes, each 20 to 30 feet deep. but each of these giant bits is only five feet long, so they have to stack them, one at a time. carolyn stieben â usgs "once it pulls out enough material, then we're ready for another stem." once the hole is done, they stick a pipe in it to keep it from collapsing while they move on to the next site to do it all over again. soon these holes will have tiny charges in them that geologists will set off in september to recreate nature. "we will generate our own micro- micro-earthquakes, if you will."
"now while all the drilling and digging happens in the heat of the day, the actual seismic test won't happen until the middle of the night." "if we do that during the day, there's a lot of cultural activity, a lot of noise from all kinds of activity, and that will overwhelm these tiny, tiny little shots that we have." once they get nine hundred sensors set up on or near the surface of the valley, u-s-g-s will be doing tests and taking measurements for a week. the red and yellow stars show where those seismic sensors will be laid out in a cross shape through the valley. it should give them plenty of information about which areas might feel the next quake the hardest. if you're worried about tiny explosions underground in napa, don't worry - you won't feel it. even if you were standing right on top of one of those drill sites, the small explosions underground would barely feel like a tickle on your feet. a scary scene at l-a-x after reports of an active shooter at the airport. >> britteny: the north bay could it happen around midnight the reason why a lot of moisture right up until the north they on the satellite's radar exactly

"the terminals were evacuated. the central terminal area roadways were shut down, as part of our active shooter protocols. once areas were empty, the terminals were evacuated, our officers, with the support of our bomb/explosive detective canine teams, did a methodical search of all our terminal areas. there was no indication that there was or had been an active shooter.

there will be no less than 10 opportunities, including several public citywide forums, for people to offer up their input on the hiring of a new police chief. now, at a press conference this afternoon, the mayor says they have been working the past few months to set up all of these public meetings as well as online surveys that people can fill out to give their input if they can't attend the public events. the mayors office also says that a recruiter has been hired to start searching for a new police chief. it's a national search, although they didn't rul out the possibility that someone internally from o- p-d could get the job. the mayor really seemded to want to move beyond the drama that made this search for a new police chief necessary. today she said this is really an opportunity for a new chief to come in and do some good oakland represents a great opportunity for a reform minded police leader to really make their mark and demonstrate the potential of 21st century policing. ok, the plan is to hold those community forums this fall, start accept applications for the job in october, interview potential candidates in november and hopefully have a new police chief in place by early next year. in oakland, charles clifford kron 4 news. >> grant: nichols was visiting a bruce convicted for murdering eight
